Pekingese on Shell

While organizing my studio, I found this wire wrapped bead pendant, which I had made closer to two years ago. The design was inspired by a friend's little dog.
The wire is Argentium Silver, which is trademarked and patented .925 sterling silver made with the addition of Germanium. Traditional sterling silver is made of silver and copper. The addition of germanium in Argentium makes it a very tarnish resistant silver. It is really amazing that it sat uncovered, exposed to the air for nearly two years, without any tarnishing.
